Quite sometime…

It has been quite sometime since we last were here, early in the year around Chinese New Year, for my nephew’s wedding reception and his grandma, my mother-in-law who just passed away last week, was still around then.

Well, I was here again the other night with my in-laws and some relatives who had come all the way for the funeral and my niece, the one currently working in Singapore, wanted this…

I am never really into these Chinese mixed vegetable dishes but according to her, she likes the yam basket.

Our next-of-kin, who lived in Miri before but have moved to KL for some six years or so now, wanted the midin

– something they can’t get all that easily there, but though it was nice, it was so light on the belacan (dried prawn paste) that we could hardly taste it.

The Foochow fried noodles…

…that we had was quite good despite the lack of ingredients other than those bits of green vegetables. At places such as this, which is not our regular kind of coffee shop, I would have expected more like what we had here or here.

Of course, we had to have their signature dishes – their so-called Peking duck…

…served wrapped with these…

Wrappers and condiments

…in the very thin egg wrappers…

It's a wrap

…and we also had their fish head curry…

…which was so very well done that night (Probably it’s the Chinese 7th Month and we were the only table that night so they had all the time to give their full concentration and do it really very well!) and everybody enjoyed it to the max though it might have been a little too spicy for some to handle, not me! I loved it!

As always, dinner here is never cheap, very nice…but not cheap and the total came up to around RM340.00 even though we did not have all that many dishes but that was inclusive of rice and drinks for some 15 of us altogether…and yes, they did have a table big enough to squeeze all of us in.
